WEST ISLIP, 185 S. Pace Dr., $949,000
Offering southeasterly views, this .37-acre parcel is the last piece of vacant land on South Pace Drive, says the listing agent. Since it has a bulkhead, it can accommodate a boat. (Great South Bay is close by.) The neighborhood is on a sewer system, and the road is paved. The owner can build a 4,000-square-foot house without zoning board approval, the agent says, noting homes in the area often exceed that size. Steve Rainone, Netter Real Estate, 631-661-5100.
BAYVILLE, 16th Street, $225,000
Close to village beaches, this 80-by-100-foot lot can accommodate a sizable house with a two-car garage, says the listing broker. The first floor can be as large as 1,800 square feet, she adds. Since the parcel is in a flood zone, the house has to be elevated to FEMA code, the broker says. The parcel is cleared, and the road is paved. The owner will have access to public water, electricity and gas. Jean Mansueto (broker-owner) and Linda Mansueto, Coast Realty, 516-628-1099.
BAITING HOLLOW, 270 Twomey Ave., $299,000
If green acres is the place for you, this 8.5-acre parcel offers a number of possibilities. While 3.5 acres has to be preserved as open space, 4.5 acres can be used for agricultural purposes. "You can have a boutique vineyard, pumpkin fields . . . a horse farm . . . any nursery stock is allowed, too," says the listing broker, noting a greenhouse is not permitted. There is a designated half-acre location where the owner can build a house. Since there is a covenant, the house has to be more than 2,000 square feet to conform with other homes in the area. On the parcel is a sizable dome that was used to store tractors. Though it is useful for storage, it can come down, the broker says. Valerie Goode, Colony Realty, 631-722-5800.
